A body lift removes the excess underlying skin and fat from the abdomen, flanks, thighs and back that results from low tissue elasticity.
The body lift improves the tone of the body tissue. It has been shown that tissue elasticity can be compromised with aging, sun damage, genetic factors and large weight fluctuations.
Rapid weight loss over a short period of time caused by bariatric surgery or intense exercise often leads to the appearance of excess skin due to the mismatch between the skin envelope and the underlying muscles. The abdomen, arms, thighs, buttocks, breasts and face sag as the skin is unable to regain its previous size and shape after being stretched for a long period of time.
A body lift will improve the following body areas:
The abdominal area - locally or extending around the sides and lower back. (abdominoplasty, tummy tuck)
Thigh - outer or posterior thigh (thigh lift, thigh reshaping)
